Any wood stuff - be it in its natural state of tree or chopped down to make furniture or little bits of pretty.
I love it all!
I also really love clocks. Cuckoo clocks to be precise and I have always wanted to get one - one day. But then Amanda very kindly offered me one that used to belong to her father. It was destined for the op shop pile unless I wanted it. Did I ever!!!!!
How gorgeous is this clock?! It was also really nice to go over to Amanda's place and meet her for the first time, she has an amazing home - the type that looks like it belongs in magazine pages it is so beautifully decorated. You can check it out on her blog, Homely One.

I feel so lucky to have been offered such a gorgeous piece, I love listening to it cuckoo and counting what time it is. MR is a big fan as well, so much so that he took over setting it up and hanging it when I wasn't even home to join in. Thank you so much Amanda!
My other latest wooden piece I got down south on my birthday trip. It is a hand turned mushroom made out of a banksia nut! Isn't it gorgeous? I love facing it this way because it looks like a little face and makes me think of May Gibb's Banksia Men (even though when I was little I thought they were scary) I am quite in love with it.
It is also a little container, although goodness knows what I would put inside? Some potpourri maybe?

Unfortuntely, my love for wooden stuff does not make for very colourful display shelves. I need to do something about that!
